The results are in, and I'm delighted to announce that I was awarded Best Letterer by Irish Comic News in the 2017 ICN Awards! I am incredibly grateful for the nomination, for everyone who voted for me, for the wonderful teams who have given me such fantastic opportunities, and to everyone who helped support and encourage me along the way. Many, many thanks!
I'm delighted to have some of my work in on display in the County Library during the month of October as part of the Cork Comic Creators exhibition! The exhibition is part of the Children's Book Festival, and features work by plenty of local artists. The work I have on display is part of a children's book I'm illustrating at the moment, written by Emmet O'Brien and Jessica Healy. If you're in the area, stop by and take a look!Read More
I had so much fun with this one! None Shall Pass, created by John Murphy of Bold Puppy and pushed a step further with LS Comics, was of those projects that really makes me fall in love with graphic design all over again. A great team of talented people came together to work on this teaser-version of the book, and I was utterly delighted to have been a part of it. Many thanks to Eoin of LSComics, John of Bold Puppy, Robert Carey, Dee Cunniffe, and Cormac Hughes!Read More
Late post this week, I'm afraid! It's been a crazy hectic fortnight overall, between moving to my new little house and travelling to Derry for
, as well as getting back into the swing of college life and keeping on top of freelance-y work. It's been busy, but I'm learning
much, and I'm having an absolute ball!
Post-con blues have hit hard this week. I came home from ComicCity in the wee hours of Monday morning, buzzing with a renewed passion for creating things, and a huge appreciation for the people that work so hard to make things happen. This week, I've been feeling an almost overwhelming sense of gratitude, new admiration, and incredible excitement for the future in every sense! I've got lots of books to look forward to reading (check out the photo below!), lots of ideas I can't wait to get down on paper, and lots of experiences to anticipate!
